Watch Accuracy Shootout

And here we go! I'm bored, so measuring accuracy of my 3 favourite mechanical watches. The results may surprise you :-) First up... My Sinn 104. Lovel...

Some thoughts on my BB58

This morning I put the BB58 on for the first time in a while (my Sinn has been favoured recently due to a new Anachronist strap). And a few things str...

A new classic

Forget the Submariner... The only "diver" watch that matters! It's a piece of junk, but always makes me smile.

Good for the ladies - Tudor making chronos just for them. About time.

commented on Micro Tournament Round 1 Day 3: Maen Vs. Straum

Gotta say, I really like the colour of that Straum. This is a strange match, as I wouldn't put a chronograph up against a normal 3-hander. I would perhaps have a separate competition for chronographs.

Get a Tudor or similar watch with silicon hairspring. Sorted!

Looking for some opinions and ideas. I've been collecting for a while now. After a host of the usual budget watches (Seiko, Orient, Vostok Invicta etc...

Holiday watch report

This year I made the conscious decision to take 2nd tier watches on holiday. Caravan sites are not known for their excessive security, so it was impor...

F**k You watches

Do you own a f**k you watch? These are the watches that go against the narrative. They prick the bubble of delusion and poke a finger in the eye of el...

Favourite watch update

The BB58 is going stronger than ever. I last reported some time ago that my Reverso was gaining on the Tudor. But on a whim I bought a new all black B...

Seiko 5 Sport - Peanuts

Funny how things like this come along. I was just wondering how I could bring back the fun in my watches, when this little thing came up in YouTube: I...
